Many people have a hard time dealing with the itching period that all tattoo's bring. You find that your tattoo starts to itch within the first couple of days and during the healing stage. While your skin is healing and is a little swollen and sore, skin cells are being renewed and the skin is peeling. This results in that horrific itching sensation.
Tattoo itching relief
When you get that itch here are your options to soothe it.
1. Slap the area but DO NOT SCRATCH - Tapping and slapping will give some relief but will not damage the top layer of the skin like scratching with nails does.
2. Use an ice pack - Ice on the itching tattoo can relieve the symptoms as the area cools down the itches diminish.
3. Rub the Tattoo - A gentle rubbing can work if the slapping method fails. Use a clean cloth to cover the tattoo then rub and gently scratch thus avoiding the nails touching and damaging the itching tattoo.
4. Use Tattoo Aftercare Balm - Another reason why tattoos get itchy is because the skin gets dry, so apply some moisturizer when it is looking or feeling dry.
The Beard and The Wonderful Tattoo Balm is an all-natural aftercare balm that helps reduce scabbing, speeds up healing, and preserves your tattoo’s color. Our balm is constructed of all-natural premium ingredients including shea butter, jojoba oil, hemp oil, beeswax, eucalyptus oil, and teatree oil. This potent combo works on healing the area as well as helping to protect it from bugs, water, sweat and sunlight which all can help to make it itch.
